Total Time 3 hours 5 minutes
Servings 4


  • 3 lb pork shoulder
  • 1/2 cup BBQ sauce of your choice I used Mama Sita's (check photo below)
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp molasses
  • 1 tbsp Sriracha
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • Pepper



  1. Mix all ingredients (other than the meat) in a bowl. 

Get your tray ready

  1. You will need a tray about 1″ thick, cover the tray with a foil. Add about 1/2 cup of water in the tray. Place a rack on top of the tray. Us a rack that is slightly bigger than your tray so it sits on top of the tray.

Bake Time

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 230°. Use a silicone brush to coat one thick layer of the sauce over the meat, make sure you cover every angle of it. Place the meat on the tray. Cover it with a tin foil and place it in the oven. Set the timer for 30 minutes.

  2. Once the timer goes off, take it out and coat another thick layer all over the meat. I just used two forks to flip the meat over. Place it back in the oven, again covering with a tin foil, set the timer for 1.5 hours.

  3. Once time is up, repeat the steps above, and this time set the time for 30 minutes.

  4. Once the timer goes off, take it out and apply another thick layer of the sauce all over the meat. At this point remove the tin foil and increase the oven temperature to 400°. Set the timer for 30 minutes. This last step should give the roast a nice brown, slightly crusty on the outside.

  5. When it’s all done, let the meat sit for at least 10 minutes before carving. Serve.
